EAST NEW YORK — Verdell Jackson says her uncle's apartment at the Unity Plaza Houses in East New York is riddled with leaks.

“There is water coming from the bathroom, the kitchen, the living room, the bedroom. He can’t sleep in the bed,” said Jackson.

Her uncle, 75-year-old Romell Boyd, is a retired NYCHA maintenance worker and plumber.

“I’ve been calling and I get no satisfaction,” said Boyd.

Boyd now feels helpless to fix his own home.

A NYCHA spokesperson says they are looking into these complaints.
